Update on the Feast of Saint Ubaldus

Work is proceeding in a methodical manner on part two of "Bergoglio the Blasphemer at Fatima," It is turn, ing out to be a long commentary that requires extensive documentation. Most of this afternoon and evening today, Tuesday, May 16, 2017will be spent completing the article for posting. Thank you for your patience.

As this is the Feast of Saint Ubaldus, who was the Bishop of Gubbio, Italy, and who died about sixty years before Saint Francis of Assisi tamed the notorious "Wolf of Gubbio," the account of his life in the readings for Matins in today's Divine Office is very instructive:

Ubald was born of a noble family at Gubbio in Umbria, and well established in godliness and learning from his earliest years. When he was a young man, it was often proposed to him to marry, but he never abandoned his determination to preserve his virginity. After that he was ordained Priest he divided his inheritance among the poor and Churches, and embraced the Institute of Canons Regular of St Austin. This Institute he brought to Gubbio, and for some time led therein a most holy life. When the fame of his saintliness had got noised abroad, Pope Honorius II. set him, contrary to his own wishes, over the Church of Gubbio, and he was honoured with consecration as Bishop by the hands of the said Pope himself, in the year of our Lord 1129.

When Ubald came to live as Bishop in Gubbio, he changed his way of life in no wise from that which he had led before, but his virtues began to be more eminent because his word and example were now more able to benefit his neighbours, to whom the shepherd of their souls was a pattern, not by outward showing only, but from his heart. He ate little, dressed simply, and slept upon a hard and very poor bed. He "always bore in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus," (2 Cor. iv. 10,) while he daily fed his soul in unceasing and earnest prayer. Hence he acquired such wonderful meekness, that when he was most grievously wronged and insulted he not only took it patiently, but, by a strange impulse of love for them, embraced his persecutors with every proof of affection.

Just the space of two years before Ubald passed away from this present life, he was tried as gold in the furnace, by grievous bodily weakness, and, day after day, amid the sharpest sufferings, he never ceased patiently to give God thanks. He rested in peace on the sacred day of Pentecost, in the year 1160, having for many years governed with great praise the Church which had been entrusted to him, and glorious for good works and miracles. Pope Celestine III. numbered him with the Saints. His strength is most chiefly shown in the casting out of evil spirits. His body hath remained without corruption for all these ages, and is reverenced greatly in his native town by Christ's faithful people. To them he hath more than once shown himself good at need. (The Divine Office, Matins, Feast of Saint Ubaldus.)

We pray to Saint Ubaldus in a time when evil spirits abound and certain types of moral corruption are taken as having "elements" of true "marriage." 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Bergoglio the Blaspheming Heretic Lives Down to Expectations at Fatima, part one

Bergoglio has now left Fatima after busily blaspheming Our Lady and distorting her Fatima Message in such a blatant way as to betray him as one of the proudest and boldest conciliar revolutionary we have seen since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958. He had an able assistant in his work of blasphemy and distortion in the person of the conciliar Vatican's Secretary of State, Pietro "Cardinal" Parolino.

This is part one of a three-part commentary. It was published at 1:44 a.m. on Saturday, May 13, 2017, the one hundredth anniversry of Our Lady's first Fatima Apparition and the Feast of Saint Robert Bellarmine.

Although work on part two is proceeding, it is simply not possible to complete it as it is now past 11;10 p.m. on May 13, 2017. Prudence dictates a cesation of work, which will resume tomorrow afternoon. Part two will cover Bergoglio's "homily" at the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service, which was followed by the conciliar "canonization" of Jacinta and Francisco Marto. Bergoglio, true to the demons that infest his soul, tried to make the holy Jacinta and Francisco in witnesses in behalf of conciliarisim, although he was a bit more subtle than it had been on Friday, May 12, 2017, at a candlight service at the Shrine of the Apparitions. Part-three will cover the press conference that he held yesterday afternoon while flying back to Rome. 

Thank you for your patience. 

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Saint Robert Bellarmine, pray for us.

Living Under the Adversary's Rules, part two

As tomorrow is the one hundredth anniversary of Our Lady's first apparition in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portgual, which will be marred by the presence of a figure of Antichrist, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a veritable poster-boy for the errors of Russia, I thought it useful to expand on the last article published on this site to demonstrate the chaos in which we find ourseleves at this time has many anteceent roots, including those found right here in the United States of America with "religious liberty" and "freedom of conscience."

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for.

Saints Nereus, Achelleus, Domatilla, and Pancratius, pray for us. 

Living Under the Adversary's Rules

President Donald John Trump issued an executive order on religious liberty six days ago. This is a not-so-little commentary on that order.

Athough the hour is late, I do want to call the attention of this site's readers to excellent post at Novus Ordo Watch Wire on the "bad popes" error that so many in the "resist while recognize" movement continue to make. 

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

May 9, 2016 Update: Feast of Saint Gregory Nazianzen within the Octave of the Solemnity of Saint Joseph

Although I am working on very long and detailed commentary on President Donald John Trump's May 4, 2017, Executive Order to "protect free speech and religious liberty," the commentary requires another full day of work before it can be completed. 

I do not write in "sound bites," which means that I try to be thorough and comprehensive in my commenataries. Although it is taking me longer than in the past to complete such commentaries, I am trying to provide food for Catholic thought beyond the emotionalism of any given moment. All I can do is to ask your patience and beg your forgivenss as I continue work on the next article, which will be followed by another commentary on the American death industry.

My hope is to finish the death-care industry commentary before Friday, May 12, 2017, the Feast of Saints Nereus, Achilleus, Domitlla and Pancratius, as the false "pontiff," Jorge Mario Bergoglio, will arrive in Fatima, Portugal, on that day to begin his two days of deconstruction and misrepresentation of Our Lady's Fatima Message on the one hundredth anniversary of her first apparition, which took place in the Cova da Iria near Fatima on May 13, 2017.

In order to prepare those who access this site now and again for the lies and blasphemies that Bergoglio will utter in Fatima, it might be useful to review On Full Display: The Modernist Mind, which discussed the deconstruction, distortion and misrepresentation that his predecessor, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, used to undermine Our Lady's very physical presence in Fatima, no less her entire message.

As today is the feast of a bishop and doctor of Holy Mother Church who is honored by both West and East, Saint Gregory Nazianzen, today's readings from the Divine Office might be edifying for the readers of this site:

Gregory, to whom, is commonly given, on account of his extraordinary depth of sacred learning, the title of "the Divine", was a noble Cappadocian, born at Nazianzus in that country, and educated at Athens along with St. Basil, with whom likewise, when they had acquired knowledge in divers branches of earthly learning, he gave himself up to learn the things of God. This they did for some years in a Monastery, framing their opinions, not out of their own heads, but according to the interpretation arrived at by the wisdom and decision of the ancients. They were both distinguished by power of doctrine and holiness of life, they were both called to the duty of preaching the Gospel of truth and, through the Gospel. they both begat many sons unto Christ.

Gregory after a while returned home. He was first made Bishop of Sasima, and afterwards administered the Church at Nazianzus. Then he was called to rule the Church of Constantinople. That city, which he found reeking with heresy, he purged, and brought again to the Catholic faith. But this, which deserved for him the warmest love of all men, raised up many enemies. Among the Bishops themselves there was a great party against him, and to still their contentions, he, of his own free will, gave up his see, saying with the Prophet Jonah: "Take me up, and cast me forth into the sea so shall the sea be calm unto you for I know that for my sake this great tempest is upon you," i. 12. So he went his way back again to Nazianzus, and when he had seen that Eulalius was set over that Church, he gave himself up altogether to think and write concerning the things of God.

He wrote much, both in prose and verse, with wonderful godliness and eloquence. According to the judgment of learned and holy men, there is nothing in his writings which anywhere strays from the line of true godliness and Catholic truth, and not a single word which any one can justly call in doubt. He was one of the latest champions of the doctrine that the Son is of one substance with the Father. No one has ever won greater praise for goodness of life, neither was any man more earnest in prayer. During the reign of the Emperor Theodosius, he dwelt in the country after the manner of a monk, and unceasingly taken up with writing and reading, until, in a good old age, he laid down his earthly, to enter on an heavenly life. (Matins, The Divine Office, Feast of Saint Gregory Nazianzen.)

The same cannot be said of the conciliar "popes," can it?

Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.

Pope Saint Pius V: Rigid Enemy of Heresy and All False Religions

This is a slightly revised version of a reflection on the saintly life and work of  the great Dominican, Pope Saint Pius X, who is indeed quite a contrast to the life and the work of the conciliar revolutionaries. 

Today's original article, , was published around 1:00 a.m. this morning.

Jorge's Preferential Option for Apostasy

The Argentine Apostate was in Egypt on April 28 and April 29, 2017. This is a brief commentary on what he did not say while he was in a land whose center of learning, the city of Alexandria, was once suffused with Catholicism. Then again, it is very difficult to speak as a Catholic when one does not have the Catholic Faith.

Although I will write a commentary about President Donald John Trump’s executive order to protect “religious liberty,” heedless of the fact that it is “religious liberty” that has made it possible for the rise of the monster civil state of Modernity, at some point next week. It is now time, however, to turn my attention to the American Death Care Act and the practices it will enable insurers to continue to fund to expedite the death of human beings.

I want to reiterate for the moment, however, that There Is Nothing "Pro-Life" About RyanCare even as amended in various ways in the version that passed in the United States House of Representatives yesterday, Thursday, May 4, 2017, the transferred Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross and the Commemoration of Saint Monica within the Octave of Saint Joseph.

A revised reflection about Pope Saint Pius V will appear later this afternoon.

On the Solemnity of Saint Joseph: Why Live In Fear With Saint Joseph So Near?

[Update on the transferred Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross and the Commemoration of Saint Monica within the Octave of Saint Joseph: As work on my commentary about the false "pontiff's" two-day Egyptian journey requires another four or five hours to complete, I must suspend work now, about 12:30 a.m., but will endeavor to complete it as quickly as possible for posting by late today, although there might be some merit in waiting until tomorrow, the Feast of Pope Saint Pius V within the Octave of Saint Joseph. The long-delayed article on "palliative care," which will touch, at least tangentially, on what is expected to be passage of the ObamaCare replacement bill by the United States House of Representatives that would keep the basic structure of the so-called Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in place, will follow thereafter. Madame Defarge will also get some attention in that particular commentary. Thanks for your patience.]

Today is the Solemnity of Saint Joseph in Paschaltide, a feast that originated under the title of “The Patronage of Saint Joseph” in 1847 by Pope Pius IX before being given its current name in 1911 and then repositioned two years later on the Wednesday following the Second Sunday after Easter by Pope Saint Pius X. This reflection is by way of an annual reminder, slightly revised, to trust in Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful, in these times of persecution by the forces of Antichrist in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. 

A commentary about the Argentine Apostate's journey to Egypt this past weekend will be posted tomorrow, the transferred Feast of the Finding of the Holy Cross,

Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Protector of the Faithful, pray for us. 

It's Still "Wait Until Next Time" for the Innocent Preborn

As it is way beyond the time that I wanted to complete this article, which has taken several long days of writing to put together, all that I have the strength to explain at this point is that this is another commentary on the farce of naturalism, which has produced another predictable outcome: continued funding of Planned Barrenhood for five more months.

There will be a brief commentary on the false “pontiff’s” activities of recent days up next on this site, and that will be followed by the much-delayed study on palliative care.

Thanks again for your patience.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Catherine of Siena Suffered With Joy For the Good Shepherd

Today’s article is a slight revision and republication of a very brief and wholly inadequate reflection on the life of the great mystic, stigmatist and spiritual directress of souls, Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P., whose feast day is the day after that of the Protomartyr of the Order of Preachers, Saint Peter of Verona (Saint Peter Martyr).

Saint Catherine was calumniated during her life, and she was blamed for having precipitated the Great Western Schism by convincing Pope Gregory XI to return to return to Rome in 1378. She suffered all such calumny with joy.

What’s our excuse for grumbling and/or murmuring about our crosses and the state of chaos in which we live in this time of apostasy and betrayal?

Remember, everything thing that happens to us has been ordained by the hand of God Himself with exquisite perfection. Saint Catherine of Siena never lost an opportunity to suffer well. Indeed, she begged to suffer more and more for love of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. So should we.

A loss of internet service for a few hours yesterday interrupted work on the next article, which should be posted by this evening. The articles are just taking longer to chun out than in years past. I am sorry.  Thank you for your patience.

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Saint Catherine of Siena, T.O.P., pray for us.
